This article is from PLoS ONE , volume 8 . Abstract Saxatilin, a novel disintegrin purified and cloned from the venom of the Korean snake Gloydius saxatilis, strongly inhibits activation and aggregation of platelets. Glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa receptor antagonists can resolve thrombus, so saxatilin might also have thrombolytic effects. We investigated the thrombolytic effects of saxatilin in mice using a ferric chloride-induced carotid arterial thrombosis model. Thrombotic occlusion and...

This study evaluated the efficacy of a biologic hemostatic fibrin patch (FP) to control coagulopathic bleeding and prevent death in a porcine model of severe liver injury with hemodilution and hypothermia. Methods: Coagulopathy was produced in swine by exchanging 60% of the animals circulating blood volume with Hextend and lowering the core temperature to 32.0 Degrees C + or - 0.5 Degrees C. A grade V liver injury was induced and allowed to bleed freely for 30 seconds (pretreatment blood loss)....

So far, all the systems developed for detoxification and decontamination of chemical and biological weapons have been based on the use of chemical or biological agents. Here, we have demonstrated a novel, simple, non-chemical/biological, multipurpose, re-useable, low-cost, alternative technology for decontamination based on electric heating with conducting polymers. The basic concept is that electrically conducting polymers, such as polyaniline, can be used as coatings or fabrics on military...

Electroencephalogram (EEG) based brain-computer interfaces (BCI) may provide a means of communication for those affected by severe paralysis. However, the relatively low information transfer rates (ITR) of these systems, currently limited to 1 bit/sec, present a serious obstacle to their widespread adoption in both clinical and non-clinical applications. Here, we report on the development of a novel noninvasive BCI communication system that achieves ITRs that are severalfold higher than those...

The data provide an angular resolution of $\sim$5 mas, and a velocity resolution of 106 m s$^{-1}$. A novel analysis procedure allows us to differentiate between broadband temporal intensity fluctuations introduced by instrumental gain variations plus interstellar diffractive scintillation, and intrinsic narrowband variations. Based on this 12.5 hours observation, we...

Abstract The plasma membrane contains discrete nanometer-sized domains that are resistant to non-ionic detergents, and which are called detergent resistant membrane domains (DRMDs) or lipid rafts. Exposure of host cells to pathogenic bacteria has been shown to induce the re-distribution of specific host proteins between DRMDs and detergent soluble membranes, which leads to the initiation of cell signaling that enable pathogens to access host cells....

We introduce a novel algorithm that computes the $k$-sparse principal component of a positive semidefinite matrix $A$. Our algorithm is combinatorial and operates by examining a discrete set of special vectors lying in a low-dimensional eigen-subspace of $A$. We obtain provable approximation guarantees that depend on the spectral profile of the matrix: the faster the eigenvalue decay, the better the quality of our approximation. For example, if the eigenvalues of $A$ follow a power-law decay,...

Abstract Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) and fiber tractography are important tools to map the cerebral white matter microstructure in vivo and to model the underlying axonal pathways in the brain with three-dimensional fiber tracts. As the fast and consistent extraction of anatomically correct fiber bundles for multiple datasets is still challenging, we present a novel atlas-guided clustering framework for exploratory data analysis of large...

This article is from PLoS ONE , volume 8 . Abstract Pc-pis is a novel piscidin-like antimicrobial polypeptide that was identified in Pseudosciaena crocea. Although active against most bacteria tested, Pc-pis was inactive against Aeromonas hydrophila and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The Pc-pis analogue Pc-pis-His was designed by adding a histidine residue at the carboxyl terminal. Pc-pis-His demonstrated a more broad-spectrum and stronger antimicrobial activity against a representative set of...

This article is from PLoS ONE , volume 8 . Abstract Introduction: Sleep-wake disturbances and concomitant cognitive dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease (PD) contribute significantly to morbidity in patients and their carers. Subjectively reported daytime sleep disturbance is observed in over half of all patients with PD and has been linked to executive cognitive dysfunction. The current study used daytime actigraphy, a novel objective measure of napping and related this to neuropsychological...

This article is from PLoS ONE , volume 9 . Abstract Our body is made of flesh and bones. We know it, and in our daily lives all the senses constantly provide converging information about this simple, factual truth. But is this always the case? Here we report a surprising bodily illusion demonstrating that humans rapidly update their assumptions about the material qualities of their body, based on their recent multisensory perceptual experience. To induce a misperception of the material...

This article is from JSLS : Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons , volume 18 . Abstract Background and Objectives:: Increased interest in laparoendoscopic single-site surgery has instigated research into trials of novel techniques. The procedure we propose may potentially improve patient satisfaction and cosmetic results while diminishing the incidence of trocar-site herniation. We report our initial experience with laparoendoscopic single-site totally extraperitoneal...

This article is from PLoS ONE , volume 9 . Abstract Background: Right heart failure is a fatal consequence of chronic pulmonary hypertension (PH). The development of PH is characterized by increased proliferation of vascular cells, in particular pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (PASMCs) and pulmonary artery endothelial cells. In the course of PH, an escalated right ventricular (RV) afterload occurs, which leads to increased perioperative morbidity and mortality. BKCa channels are...

This article is from PLoS ONE , volume 9 . Abstract : Couplings between uterine contractions (UC) and fetal heart rate (fHR) provide important information on fetal condition during labor. At present, couplings between UC and fHR are assessed by visual analysis and interpretation of cardiotocography. The application of computerized approaches is restricted due to the non-stationarity of the signal, missing data and noise, typical for fHR. Herein, we propose a novel approach to assess couplings...

This article is from Journal of Neuroinflammation , volume 9 . Abstract Background: Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) remains a serious clinical problem lacking effective treatment. Urocortin (UCN), a novel anti-inflammatory neuropeptide, protects injured cardiomyocytes and dopaminergic neurons. Our preliminary studies indicate UCN alleviates ICH-induced brain injury when administered intracerebroventricularly (ICV). The present study examines the therapeutic effect of UCN on ICH-induced...

This article is from PLoS ONE , volume 9 . Abstract Despite the fact that enteric redmouth disease (ERM) in farmed rainbow trout is one of the most devastating disease problems, little is known about the initial route of infection and pathogenicity of the aetiological agent, Yersinia ruckeri. In order to determine the initially infected organs, optical projection tomography (OPT), a novel three-dimensional (3D) bio-imaging technique, was applied. OPT not only enables the visualization of Y....

Max Ernst  (2 April 1891 – 1 April 1976) was a German (naturalised American in 1948 and  French  in 1958) painter, sculptor,  graphic artist , and poet. A prolific artist, Ernst was a primary pioneer of the  Dada  movement and  Surrealism . He had no formal artistic training, but his experimental attitude toward the making of art resulted in his invention of  frottage —a technique that uses pencil rubbings of objects as a source of images— and ' grattage ', an analogous technique...
